IU Celebrate Excellence of Achievement in Academics, Arts and Athletics

An Autumn Salute


Herman B Wells, IU’s beloved 11th president, often said that wherever the eye rested, it should see something beautiful and uplifting. At IU’s museums, libraries, and galleries, we continue to strive for that goal through exhibits that inspire creativity and enrich the human spirit.

At one point in his career, Herman Wells vowed that he would not be satisfied until there were singing societies and art classes for all who wanted them in every county. Thanks to his vision, all of IU's eight campuses are centers of art and culture for the regions they serve.”
— IU President Michael A. McRobbie

Being surrounded by talented people and the objects that they have created is one of the most pleasurable aspects of living and working on all IU campuses.”
— Adelheid Gealt, director, IU Art Museum
